A surprise weapon against the d6-Sicilian
In this 60-Minutes Markus Ragger presents a repertoire which has been tested at top level that takes your opponents into more unfamiliar territory. The basic system is introduced with the rather unusual capture on d4 with the queen.
The Torre Attack
The Torre Attack is an extremely effective way of taking your opponent into an uncomfortable situation right from move one.
Le Système de Londres avec 2.Ff4
Avec 2.Ff4, vous forcez votre adversaire à venir sur votre terrain. Débuter par ce coup de Fou, au lieu de 2.Cf3, vous permettra dans certains cas une approche plus dynamique avec l’idée Cc3 suivi de e4.

The Beliavsky Plan against the Stonewall Dutch
You exchange the bishop on f4 to open the g-file (gxf4) and double rooks there. Black will protect his weakness on this file with all his forces. You transfer your pieces to the other side, create a new weakness there, and the opponent will be helpless
Meeting the Gambits Vol.2 - Gambits after 1.d4
Si l'on tombe dans la préparation de son adversaire ou dans une position dont on a qu'une conception floue des tenants et des aboutissants, on risque d'être happé par les sentiments d'insécurité, voire de panique.
The Blumenfeld Gambit - A sharp weapon in the Benoni
It was back in the 1920s that the Russian master Benjamin Blumenfeld invented his famous gambit 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 c5 4.d5 b5!?, and to the present day the opening retains great popularity. Black plays for the initiative and the win from the word go.
The Kasparov Gambit
The usual move order is 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 c5 3 Nf3 cxd4 4 Nxd4 e5!? 5 Nb5 d5 6 cxd5 Bc5 bringing us to a very sharp position. Andrew MArtin shows this variation from black's point of view.
Winning against King's Indian - With the main line
In the classical system of the King’s Indian White develops naturally and refrains from chasing ghosts looking for a refutation of Black’s set-up. White instead relies on the fact that natural play should yield him a small but lasting advantage.
An ambitious setup against the Benoni
The topic of this 60 minute video clip is the major idea of the 8.h3 0-0 9.Bd3 line. It has not won much love among defenders of the Benoni - White players are coming dangerously close to realising the dream of squeezing the opponent.
A waiting Game in the Queen's Indian 7...Na6
Let FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin introduce you to the Tiviakov method, where he covers all of 8.b3, 8.Re1, 8.Bf4, 8.Bg5, 8.a3, 8.Qa4 and 8.d5 and all in around an hour!
The ABC of the Bogo Indian
After 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ Black develops smoothly and prepares to castle. He retains maximum flexibility with his central pawns. You do not need to know an enormous amount of theory to play.
Attacking with the Benko Gambit - Part 2
GM Ramirez completes his repertoire suggestion versus 1.d4 with powerful systems among others against the ColleSystem, Trompowsky or the declining move 3.Nf3. An absolute asset - not only for friends of the Benko Gambit!
The English Defence
The English Defence (1…b6) is a less well-known weapon against White setups with 1.c4 and 2.d4. Black has a number of nice tricks and ideas at his disposal that can quickly dispatch an unprepared opponent.
